Powerballs are moist, nutty delicious bites made from eight ingredients: dates, walnuts, dried apricots, sprouted sunflower seeds, goji berries, hemp hearts, flaxseed meal and cinnamon. Sweet and scrumptious, Powerballs are the ideal snack or dessert that satisfies those sweet cravings we all get from time to time.

Inspired by the recipe for Superfood Breakfast Bites in the How Not To Die Cookbook, Powerballs are heavy on the dates, apricots, and walnuts but its the seeds, berries, hemp, and flaxseed along with the cinnamon that make these treats so special.

Powerballs are super easy to make and only require the use of a food processor to mix the ingredients.

Powerballs (makes about twenty 1-1/2 inch balls)


  • 1 cup pitted dates, soaked in very hot water for 20 minutes and then drained
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) dried unsulphured apricots
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup sprouted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Place the pitted dates and walnuts in a food processor and pulse until combined.

Add the sunflower seeds, goji berries, hemp hearts, flaxseed meal, and cinnamon and combine to blend (Note:  you may have to stop the processor and stir). This should take about 30 seconds.

Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place about a tablespoon of the mixture into your hands and roll into a ball and then place on the parchment paper. Repeat until the mixture is gone. The recipe makes approximately 20 Powerballs.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 4 hours before enjoying. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
